This was the best of all four.
I found the articles and maps to be very good. This was the first atlas I found to show exactly how Meso-American Empires were related.
I also liked the coverage of the ancient Middle East. I love to read history and this book had new stuff I hadn't found. And it is nice to have it all in one place (might have taken me weeks or months to find all of this on the Internet).
Very happy with this book
I got this book as a gift. It covers quite a bit of history in a small book. More of a starting off point for further research with other books. The photos and maps are very nice however. Most of the other books on history I looked at lacked such nice colorful images and maps.
I did find one error so far, page 102, the Greek City States chapter. I was all into reading the story of the Spartan-Athens victory over the Persians in 480-479 but at the very bottom of the page the sentence does not finish.
"""Their victory is generally recognized as marking the beginning of the Classical age of """"
I figured it would continue on the opposite page, however that page starts a new chapter. Kind of a dissapointment. Age of what????!!!! Now I'll never know. Haha!
I'll still look into buying The Penguin Historical Atlas of Rome and Greece only because of the nice pictures and maps.
Go grab a copy.
Anything that can make my son interested in learning is 100% great.
